PARIS - Toulouse will have to wait until the last game of the French rugby season to make sure of a Top 14 play-off spot while Perpignan slipped closer to a first relegation since 1911.

Nineteen-time champions Toulouse, who have reached the semi-finals at least for the past 20 seasons, were held to a 19-19 draw by relegation-threatened Oyonnax on Saturday to occupy the sixth and last place for the play-offs.

They are level on points with Stade Francais who claimed a bonus point in Saturday's late game in a 37-23 win over and Bordeaux-Begles.

But Stade have the toughest task of the last weekend in two weeks' time when they must travel to table-topping Toulon while Toulouse are at home to mid-table Grenoble.

Oyonnax are second bottom on 50 points, the same as Bayonne, who drew 21-21 at Grenoble, and Perpignan who were humbled 46-31 by European champions and league leaders Toulon in Barcelona.
